2019 04 UkraineTogether with Frank Suchy, Wouter travelled to Kiev for a CBMC meeting, a Young Professional meeting, preaching in churches and preparing a conference in October. It was a very special trip, where we were able to encourage the people, share wisdom and practical business insights. We discussed the future and how to bless and develop the nation.
We experienced that self-worth, self-love is rare. Being valued, encouraged and built to flourish is not part of the business culture in Ukraine. Having spiritual fathers who love and care is not common. Therefore it is important just to be there, to share time and friendship, taking questions and sharing wisdom and love. Frank and Wouter were allowed and able to do it.

After the young professional meeting, 15 young professionals signed up to be part of a small group.
We also planned a conference for Friday 4 October for business people and business leaders. If we could bring a positive change throughout business, this would help the development of the nation in a positive way. 
The trip was a blessing and we thank God for it. 

 

Wouter has been invited to speak at the leaders summit for government and business in Bratislava, where Czech and Slovakia business people and politicians met. It was a great place to meet our business friends in Slovakia and Czech and Wouter had many fruitful conversations about partnering with Europartners and personal topics. In the breakfast speech at Friday, he shared his testimony and explained two different approaches in business. One focussed on personal gain and wellbeing only and one focussed on serving the city and all the stakeholders of the company, without being less profitable. It was well received. (Photo Ramses R.

 We recently had our very first weekend of the Young Professionals Academy in Cluj, Romania. Our trainers Ron Zwaan and Frans van Santen had a great time together with 22 participants. Thanks to our volunteers Corneliu and Stephanie Niste, the weekend was very well organized. 

Together we discovered our calling and destiny as leaders. It was in a productive, intimate and open climate to which everyone contributed. At the end of the program we had communion together, remembering that we all are Christ’s own and live to honor Him. We would like to share this video with you that one of our appreciated volunteers made. Worth watching!
